Look At How Lag-Free Killzone: Shadow Fall Looks Via Remote Play Over The Internet


We know that nearly all the upcoming games on the PlayStation 4 will be playable via Remote Play feature. Remote Play feature allowed you to play your PlayStation 4 games on your PlayStation Vita and you just don’t have to be connected on the same WiFi network for it to work. Remote Play has been demonstrated a lot of by Sony and The Ultimate PlayStation 4 FAQ states that Sony strongly recommends that Remote Play be initiated on the same WiFi network and that it may or may not work outside the area.

We strongly recommend that Remote Play be used within the same WiFi network where PS4 is connected. Remote Play may or may not work over a wide area network. For Remote Play to function over a wide area network, a robust and stable WiFi connection and broadband Internet connection is required, and the local area network where PS4 is connected must be configured to permit the PS Vita system to access PS4.

One user, Vazzaroth, over at YouTube demonstrated that he had no problems using the Remote Play feature practically outside his home. He showed himself playing Killzone: Shadow Fall on his PlayStation Vita at work connected to a “middle speed corporate WiFi” whereas the PlayStation 4 was connected to the router at home via the ethernet cable.

You can watch the video below:

Vazzaroth states that any bad quality you see if because it was being recorded via a phone camera. He also states that the fps are “30-ish” and don’t seem to drop. It was confirmed that fps would be locked at 30fps when playing via the Remote Play.

Frankly we are impressed that Remote Play is functioning so well even outside the comfort of home. This really shows that PlayStation Vita is also a killer app for the PlayStation 4 and you can basically take your games anywhere as you can also play over your cellular network (3G).

What do you think about Remote Play? Best working feature to date? Will you be availing it? Let us know in the comments below.

    I actually just bought a PS Vita a few days ago (it was on a great deal), only because I’m getting a PS4 later this month. It is actually a great little device, Killzone Mercenary looks stunning on it – not sure why the 3DS is selling so much better.

    I think this system will be to unstable, sometimes it will work sometimes it won’t, lag input etc.a lot of people will probable feel it’s pointless if they only have standard network speeds and having to be so close to the PS4
    I wouldn’t buy an expensive Vita to risk it, wait until other confirm it works on a NORMAL speed network not the ones at 2 GB that they used for demos on Tokyo etc.

      What is NORMAL speed network are oyu talking about here, and how much they will pay for the internet bill monthtly ?

        It’s Comcast Corprate, not T1 or anything. I was getting ~30 mbps down at Work that day.

    I’ll wait to try it out myself tomorrow. Bring on the PS4!

    Pretty noticeable input lag… but I guess the convenience factor is worth it.

    • Vazzaroth

      There really wasn’t any/very little input lag when I played. The performance hasn’t been as good as my video since the PS4 launch ( I won the PS4 pre-launch game), but it was not nearly as unplayable as I had expected before I got my PS4.
